2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,600 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 27 trips to carry that many people.

Book Meme Day #3

Day 3 – Do you have an e-reader? What format do you prefer to buy books in?

I only have an e-reader because Kindle for Android came pre-installed on my Samsung Continuum (who I have named Adria). I prefer buying tangible, printed books. I just get so distracted when it comes to technology and I can concentrate much easier on printed materials.

Though, I do appreciate the convenience of having 8+ books on my phone at one time. I love being able to get classic literature for free. 🙂

Day 2 – Bad book habit? Do you ever dog-ear books? Do you ever write in the margins of your books? Not even with textbooks?

My bad book habit is getting so many at once that I cannot keep up with all the reading! I’ve tried to train myself to use the saved list feature on my library account and the “to-read” shelve on my goodreads before getting something, but I see so many amazing things at work that I cannot help but bring home!

I do not dog ear books, especially after becoming a page. I’m the one who has to un-dog ear all of the pages patrons mess with. Often, patrons will actually fold the book pages in half for sections of the book and that is one of the worst things, in my opinion.

I do not write in the margins of my books, even textbooks. Well, especially textbooks. I do my best to keep my textbooks, even used ones, in sellable condition so I can get some money back at the end of the quarter (because I always end up needing it; textbooks are expensive, especially with all the math and science I take). I’m more a fan of flags and sticky notes if I need to make a note in a book.
